From Minneapolis to Anchorage in Feb 1967. My Dad moved us to Alaska. I think I slept the entire trip...but I do remember walking out of the airport into the cold...and thinking...it's just like Minnesota!

All by myself, when I was 16, from San Diego to Phoenix. My parents were going on vacation and I didn't want to go with them so the only alternative was to go stay with my brother and his wife. It was only an hour flight so I broke in easily!

Next flight was when dh was in the Marine Corps and we were going to Hawaii. We took a military flight (free) and were put on a Cargo Plane and refueled jets along the way. lol...it was an experience, had to wear life jackets and ear plugs ha....And I really don't care for flying much so that didn't help!

The first flight I can remember being on, and probably the first one I was on, was an American Airlines Boeing 707, traveling round trip from Los Angeles to Toronto in 1975 or 1976. Since then, I haven't flown a whole lot. The other aircraft and flights I've been on were:

TWA Lockheed L-1011, round trip Los Angeles to Philadelphia (~1979)
Continental Airbus A-310, round trip Los Angeles to Houston (~1988)
Continental Boeing 727, round trip Houston to Gunnison, CO (~1988)
Lacsa Boeing 727, Los Angeles to Mexico City, to Guatemala City, to San Pedro Sula (Honduras), to San Jose (Costa Rica), to San Salvador (El Salvador), back to Guatemala City, Mexico City, and Los Angeles (1989)
Horizon Air Bombardier CRJ 700, round trip Burbank, CA to Portland, OR (2008)
ExpressJet Embraer ERJ 145, round trip Bakersfield, CA to San Diego, CA (2008 - this was also the first flight for my two kids)

I've also flown numerous times in private aircraft and a couple times in helicopters, but the above list is all the commercial flights I believe I've taken.

My first trip I can't really remember. My parents and I lived in Bermuda (I was born there), and we flew back to Italy to get my baptism done in their hometown with my family around. So this was around late 1988/early 1989, and I was a few months old. Needless to say, I flew a lot in my childhood.
